Sunset Of Peter Chambers
The site (as of 2016) "the digital deli" has a good write-up of this series, explaining it's short life. I was happy to discover Peter Chambers, and have a comments.
Controlled by a single writer, on a limited budget as radio shows were fading away, and both the star's growing popularity in films and TV and re-acquisition of "Lux Radio Theater" doomed it to one season.
The scripts had an almost monotonous similarity, from characters to dames and romance. The theme music was inappropriate, jarring. Still, for the great sound quality and rarity of the show, hardly ever heard on nostalgia based radio today, it's worth 3 stars, a fitting tribute to the latter days of radio drama. Thanx for bring the shows to this site!

These are good shows. But the music bridge between shoes is very much louder than the shows. Can it be edited out?
On 54-07-06 I heard a cue quite like The Applegates British TV show theme "Looking Around." So I would guess the other cues are from same library.
